I was using Yaz, but my prescription ran out and I couldn't get an appointment with the doctor for a new prescription (Yasmin) until today (Thursday). I should have started my new pack on Sunday. My question is, should i take the five pills and then finish taking the pack normally? Or should I wait until Sunday (a week late) to start the pack normally? Or should I wait until next month to start? I am getting married in 2 weeks, so I want to be on birth control, but I'm worried about how missing the pills/taking them at the wrong time will affect my hormones. When I started on Yaz my face broke out, so I definitely don't want that on my wedding. I've also heard of people experiencing similar things when they come off birth control. Do you have any advice for how/when I should start my new pack?
